A 20-year-old from Florence denounced the attack suffered in a club by a Parma player, Abdou Diakhaté.
A 20-year-old girl from Florence, Samantha Luisa Duarte , reported that she was attacked by Abdou Diakhaté , a Parma player and former Fiorentina, in a club in Florence and that she had not received help from those present.
The young woman posted a video on her Facebook profile in which she tells what would happen in the club. The player would have hit her with a punch causing her jaw fracture. Samantha, who had an operation and will have to undergo a second surgery, said she decided to tell her story because she wants "justice". "I am forced to operate, eat baby food and do rehabilitation for months".
In the video she explains that the player “called her to talk, I went there to talk and he threw a punch at me ”. And in front of the camera he also accuses the security staff of having "escorted the football player to the car while no one helped me, those who work in the club pretended nothing happened, they left me in a pool of blood".
A friend of hers would have helped her after the attack: “I want justice, it doesn't work like that. There is no such thing as a man can break a woman's bones and instead of being rescued, he is escorted to the car because he is a famous footballer ”.
The girl's lawyer: "Hit with a fist"
The girl's lawyer Francesco Di Luciano, contacted by Fanpage.it , confirmed that a complaint had been filed on the episode that would have taken place on the night of July 24 : "My client was there with some friends, at one point she was called by this former footballer who she knows because they went to school together. She came over and didn't understand for some reason he punched her in the face, fracturing her jaw and knocking out some teeth ”.
On what happened, according to reports from Ansa, the local made it known that no security guard would have escorted the player out . The staff would have accompanied Diakhaté precisely because there had been problems and no one had initially realized the severity of the injury suffered by the young woman.
The footballer's lawyer: "He defended his girlfriend"
The lawyer of the football player, the lawyer Massimiliano Manzo, spoke, again through Ansa . The "19-year-old girlfriend of the footballer Abdou Diakhaté was attacked and beaten by the 20-year-old in September 2019". "She was denounced for that attack and will be judged on 1 October 2020 by the Criminal Court of Florence", said the lawyer who then also provided his version of what happened in the Florence venue.
“On Friday 24 July, the player was in a club with his girlfriend Clara. The couple was approached threateningly by the other young woman, ”according to the lawyer. "Despite being invited by the player to leave, she tried to attack the couple and hit the player in the head, who, dazed, defended himself instinctively by hitting the woman's face". Which “did not stop and continued to rant threateningly. It is therefore an obvious case of self-defense – said the lawyer – in which Abdou Diakhaté acted to defend himself and his girlfriend ”.
